It's been nearly a year since Flyin' Miata took two cars to the Targa Newfoundland. As you may recall, I got to tag along and do my best to get the supercharged Grand Touring entry as lost as possible. While we were there, one very dedicated film crew followed us from stage to stage, thereby documenting our various triumphs and defeats for a feature-length film. Packed with lots of in-stage footage, interviews with crew as well as fans of both Flyin' Miata and the Targa Newfoundland, the show finds itself on footing with the likes of Truth in 24 and From Dust to Glory.

I spend a bit of time on screen trying to explain what it's like to drown under a league of time-speed-distance calculations, but don't let that be a deterrent. The movie does a stellar job of conveying exactly what it's like to compete in one of the most unique motorsports endeavors on the planet. You can check out the preview for Racing the Rock below or head over to Flyin' Miata to purchase your DVD copy. Keep an eye out for it to show up on iTunes and BluRay later down the line.

      Used to race a Miata and still wish I had one. Would love to do a second generation Miata with an LS6 engine conversion. Probably one of the best cars to learn how to drive fast with and a great car to modify. Looking forward to seeing them return to the Targa and really put in a solid effort.

      What Zach is too shy to say is that he and Brandon are one funny pair. And they get funnier the more sleep-deprived they get...

      I want to say this is a repost. Maybe I saw it on Jalpnik some months ago.

        Ah, never mind. Same headline and same video... but slightly different context. Don't get paid more for writing new lines?

          Different video - the original preview over a year ago was to raise money for the Kickstarter project. Here's the final result, which premiered last week. The video here is the first four minutes of the DVD that's now available. Same headline, I think you're right.

      Glad to see this hit the light of day. My copy just showed up in the mail today (Thanks Keith for the doodles, and the autographs. I couldn't drive I was laughing so hard). It's been a project I've been following since I first signed on to sponsor what became Zach and Brandons car- I couldn't have been happier to be on board and bring motorsports to the masses, or the masses to motorsport. Will be making the neighbors mad in surround sound in short order.

        Glad you enjoyed the graffiti! Let us know what you think of the final product.
